I remember John Curran, who was at the Monte Video meeting where 1Net 
idea arose, saying quite recently on this list something to the effect 
that 1Net is yet just an e- discussion space, and it can become what its 
steering committee (which hasnt met yet) may want it to become...

I havent seen simple e-lists being suddenly invited to co-own and 
co-shape global meetings. Have you? Does it not appear strange. And for 
getting such an invitation to come into the centre of Brazil meeting 
hosting space, one has to really push hard, and have a lot of power. (I 
know also because some well established civil society groups tried - 
together - to enter this 'hosting space' and got no response.).. These 
are power games... 1Net itself is hardly in a position to do the 
pushing... So whoever has the power and is using it to come to the 
centre of Brazil meeting hosting space is 1Net at the moment. Follows 
logically, whether we like it or not.
